‘The McQueen is Dead’ is a Giclée print by contemporary artist Mason Storm. From a limited edition of 100, the print is signed and numbered by the artist.
Elusive artist Mason Storm creates meticulously detailed prints from a fusion of conventional painting techniques and mediums, cultural iconography, and themes of modernity. His work turns around the traditional portrait, adding in elements form contemporary culture: from music, to TV, to advertising, Storm’s updates are brilliant satirical commentaries on twenty-first century society.
‘The McQueen is Dead’ depicts the late, iconic fashion designer Alexander McQueen as Hamlet, leaning his arms on a skull, as he casually smokes a cigarette: an inspired combination of classic literary symbolism and contemporary culture.
